while on songs and tongue in cheek

for "Shine" I was reminded of the Seikilos song
from 2000 years ago:

OSON ZHS FAINOY
MHDEN OLWS SY LYPOY
PROS OLIGON ESTI TO ZHN
TO TELOS O XRONOS APAITEI.

as long as you live -- shine [put on an appearance]
in no way at all be grieving
living is for a short season
Time is requesting its tax/end [pun]

="Time takes its toll"
